Comments:- Recording of a performance in the Palacio de la Bellas Artes, Mexico City (12 July 1949). According to the «EJS Discography» (p.282) and to the Discography ofDi Stefano's recordings (The Record Collector Vol.39 No.3 p.278) the conductor was Renato Cellini. The «EJS Discography» also gives the year as 1950, but 1949 is also mentioned. The performance chronology and discography in «Simionato» by Jean-Jacques Hanine Roussel (p.261, p.301) gives the conductor as Picco and the year as 1949, and does not mention a performance of «La favorita» in Mexico Cityin 1950. An advertisment in GRAMOPHONE (December 1977 p.1082) gives the year as 1950 and the conductor as Cellini. The balance of evidence seems to be in favour of Cellini as the conductor and 1949 as the year. Hovever Bob Rose writing in Fanfare (Nay/Jume 2000 p,153) concluded that the conductor was most probably Picco

Comments:- Recording of a performance at the Salzburg Festival (27 July 1953). According to Henry Fogel in his review in FANFARE of the CDs issued by Music & Arts «Until now most reissues of a Siepi/Furtwängler Don Giovanni were of the 1954 performance, even if they were labeled 1953. CD editions on Fonit Cetra, Hunt, and the Bruno Walter Society, and LP editions on Foyer, Cetra Live Opera, and Morgan, were all labeled 1953 but were, in fact 1954.».

Comments:- Recording of a performance at the MET (17 March 1956). A recording of «La forza del destino» is listed on the on-line catalogue of «The Opera Lovers» with the same date as this recording (17.03.56) with the conductor given as Mitropoulos. This seems to be an error as the «MET Annals» gives Stiedry. Mitropoulos never conducted «La forza del destino» at the MET.
